Online Event July 20 Commemorating the Turkish Invasion of Cyprus

NEW YORK – On Monday, July 20, 1 PM EDT, the International Coordinating Committee Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA) hosts an online event via Zoom commemorating the grim 46th anniversary of the illegal Turkish invasion of Cyprus and the occupation which continues today.

Speakers include Cyprus Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Christodoulides, U.S. Senator Robert Menendez – the ranking Democrat in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, U.S. Congressman and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, Congressman and House Middle East Subcommittee Chairman Ted Deutch, and American Jewish Committee CEO David Harris. The discussion will be moderated by PSEKA President Philip Christopher and Andy Manatos, CEO of Manatos & Manatos. Special remarks will also be made by the leadership of AHEPA, the Federation of Cypriot American Organizations, and the Hellenic American Leadership Council.

More information is available online: https://pseka.org/.

AHEPA also released the following statement concerning the grim anniversary:

The Supreme President of the Order of AHEPA, George G. Horiates, on behalf of the entire AHEPA family, stands in solidarity with our Cypriot brothers in recognizing the 46th year of Turkish Occupation of Cyprus.

In 1974, this illegal invasion occurred and despite millions of dollars, hundreds of thousands of man hours and constant pressure, we have been unable to resolve this tragedy.

Hopefully, the world will see the truth in Turkey’s actions since they have once again violated and trampled on the West by announcing the creation of a mosque in Agia Sophia. Even Kemal Atatürk knew not to ruin this world heritage site. This tyranny will not be forgotten or go unanswered.

We will never forget!
